Dutch auction is not working properly

Hi all, I hope you can help me with the following problem.

We have SRM 7.1

The Dutch auction is not working properly. I generated a Dutch auction with a start price,

Time increment (in minutes) and a price increment.

However, after the time increment has Passed, the next valid Bid value (on vendor screen) does not increase with respect to the price increment.

Start Price = 100
Price increment = 10
Time increment (minute) = 5
Celing price = 140

Under this information I hope that, if no bids at the end of 5 minutes, the start price should increase from 100 to 110 (which should be reflected in the Next Valid Bid). Still far exceeding the 5 minutes, there is never a price increase.

Any suggestions to enable the proper functioning of this type of auction?

    Dear Raul,

    please set the "Bid Validation" to "Dutch Auction" in SPRO:

    IMG -> SAP Supplier Relationship Management -> SRM Server -> Cross-Application Basic Settings -> Define Transaction types -> Select BUS2208 and double-click on Transaction Types.

    On the next screen select Dutch Auction and set the "Bid Validation" to "Dutch Auction" and save the changes.

    If this does not solve the behavior contact SAP Support for further analysis.

    Best regards,
